2nd open letter to Acting Labor Commissioner Robert Jones

Why did Victoria Bradshaw give you the title of Acting Labor Commissioner? Is it because you could not receive senate confirmation if she appointed you as the actual Labor Commissioner? Is this how you and she are side-stepping the Labor Commissioner confirmation process? Is mocking the senate confirmation process of political appointees something to be proud of?
Remember when you issued that 'no-speak' memo to your fellow DLSE attorneys? Rescinding it was an act of cowardice; you should have stayed the course if you had the conviction to write it, sign it, and issue it. After all, didn't you think you were right? What is it about the 1st Amendment that bothers you?
In June, DLSE Deputy Chief Lupe Almaraz lied on his 06/16/06 memorandum to me when the meeting was to discuss "job performance." Richard Munoz, one of your minions, subsequently submits to the court that the DLSE is not required to provide any reason for an investigation, so why did Deputy Chief Lupe Almaraz take the time to intentionally mislead his meeting from the start? You really want a public record of this "credibility" issue on June 4th? What is he going to say, under penalty of perjury, when he's deposed about the details of that memo?
I asked Lupe to settle this, and Richard Munoz just laughed like any arrogant attorney would. Your actions inspire me, and you'll need to terminate my employment for me to leave. You wrongfully terminated Miles Locker, and word on the street has him coming back to DLSE. You like apples? How do you like those apples?

This blog is becoming a dying dinosaur. This is nothing more than a means for the blogger to express his anger when he cannot get his way. Lupe Almarez and Bob Jones are very dedicated to all it's employees and DLSE. I know because I worked for both of them. They are extremely supportive of all the Units. As far as CMS goes, this was in place prior to Lupe and Bob. They now need to make the best of it. Don't bother to write to me regarding my comments since I will not be checking the blog for a response. Minerva Duff, Retired
